Brevard Music Center
Brevard, NC, United States
Founded over 80 years ago, the Brevard Music Center stands as one of this country’s premier summer classical music training programs and festivals. Each summer, 500 gifted students (ages 14 through post-college) come to the Music Center from all across the US and around the world to study with a distinguished faculty and renowned guest artists.
This next generation of classical musicians participate in a rigorous program of instruction and performance led by Artistic Director and alumnus Keith Lockhart, also Principal Conductor of the Boston Pops and Chief Guest Conductor of BBC Concert Orchestra in London.
Brevard’s hallmark is the powerful sense of community that re-emerges every June through August as faculty and students present more than 80 remarkable concerts to summer audiences totaling over 40,000.
